Last Minute Halloween Accessory!

0 comments
If you're dressing up as a woodland fairy or anything mythical/fantastical, check these out! I found them at Shoppers Drug Mart for around $5. They're made by Wet n Wild so I'm sure you can find them as part of the Fantasy Makers line in the US as well!

They have little butterfly and deer cutouts on them :) They're self adhesive too so there's no mess, no glue and no pain afterwards!

International Summer Etsy Picks!

0 comments

Summer officially began last week, so I thought it was time to share my summer Etsy picks!  Many of these products are handmade by artisans who may live near you! I have chosen many "summer-y" items from all around the world, many of which can be shipped worldwide.

Nautical Dangle Earrings

$18.00 from Norway (ships worldwide)

The nautical theme is so popular these days! I love that the earrings don't match, but are cohesive. 




bike bracelet, "Where there is a will, there is a way"

$8.59 from China (ships worldwide)

This bracelet would be great motivation to keep active during the summer!



APRICOT - Eyeshadow Mineral Makeup

$4.89, from USA (ships worldwide)

Apricot is a great neutral colour to wear in the summer. The peach and gold tones will bring out your summer tan!

HOLOGRAPHIC Nail Polish SPECTACLE Fast dry sparkly Nail Varnish

$8.00 from Bulgaria (ships worldwide)

This bright blue nail polish has tons of glitter and would be great to wear to the beach or on vacation!


W√ľnderblok Sunscreen Bar

$10.00, from USA (ships to USA only)

Sunscreen is definitely a must if you'll be out in the sun!


Texturizing Sea Salt Styling Spray

$20 from USA (ships to USA only)

If you can't get to the beach, this sea salt spray will give your hair breach waves.

Two Tone Infinity Hemp Bracelet

$6.00 from Canada (ships worldwide)

Hemp bracelets are making a comeback! They come in many different colours and would be great to give as gifts.

Peach Blossom Solid Lotion Shimmer Highlight Bar (Organic) with fine Mica

$10.50 from Canada (ships to Canada and USA only)

This highlight bar will leave subtle shimmer on your skin. This is great if you don't like wearing lotions or gels!


Tangerine lip balm

$4.70 from Greece (ships worldwide)

Lip balms will keep your lips moisturized and prevent them from getting chapped. The tangerine flavour will pair perfectly with a relaxing Sunday afternoon.

Airplane charm necklace

$10.00 from the Philippines (ships worldwide)

If you're going on vacation this summer, this necklace will help get you excited about your trip! Even if you're not going on holiday, this necklace is cute and will look great with almost anything,

Barefoot Sandals

$17.00 from Poland (ships worldwide)

If you enjoy going barefoot but still enjoy the look of flip flops, these barefoot sandals will be sure to attract a lot of attention.

White cotton lace dress

$191.00 from Australia (ships worldwide)

This dress is right on trend, while still maintaing its vintage look.

2 BARS Teal and White Polka Dot Soap

$15.00 from South Africa (ships worldwide)

This fun bar of soap will add colour to your bathroom, making it great any time of year.

Vegan Clutch

$27 from Mexico (ships worldwide)

I love this clutch! The brown fabric on the corners helps soften the grey and white print. The little leaf charm is my favourite part!

Pink flowers photograph 8x12

$21.00 from Brazil (ships worldwide)

If you're stuck in an office all day, prints like this one will help bring some summertime to you. The artist also has many other prints in lots of bright colours.

Embroidered Purple Laptop Sleeve

$99.00 from India (ships worldwide)

If you're a purple/fuchsia fan, this laptop sleeve is for you!

 Black Cotton Mini Ruffle Bag with Beads Strap

$39.00 from Thailand (ships worldwide)

I bought this bag a couple of years ago and it's still going strong! I asked the Seller if I could get burgundy fabric on the inside instead of red and she had no problem accommodating that! I would definitely purchase another bag from her as she has many designs that fit my style. Also, the prices are very affordable!

Coharu Japanese Label Maker

$84.21 from Japan (ships worldwide)

These label makers are so cute! Definitely a must-have for someone who likes to be organized (or for someone who wishes they were organized!)

Yellow Felt Milk Can Bag

$145.00 from Russia (ships worldwide)

This is one of the most unique bags I've ever seen. Not only is it striking in canary yellow, but it's also in the shape of a milk can! 

Chevron Case iPhone 4 / 4S

$8.99 from England (ships worldwide)

Chevron is a popular pattern for this summer. I like this case in coral because it's a colour that I always associate with summer.

Dreamcatcher Nail Decals 36 Ct.

$4.85 from USA (ships to USA only)

Dream catchers are another thing that I associate with summer. The long bird feathers and intricate pattern remind me of the native culture in North America. I love that the seller photographed these decals on bright blue nail polish!
